Committee Proposes New Features for WebReg

Other possible changes include a new mobile site and being able to register on any smartphone, though the committee has not announced an official launch date for the changes to take effect.

“There will be lots of changes in integration which [ACS] needs to work on,” TritonLink Executive Committee undergraduate representative and Campuswide Senator Karen Liang said. “A lot of people have come to me saying that it’s difficult having a lot of tabs open [for registration], so we’re making this all one window.”

The schedule of classes, class planner and registration sign-up time are among the registration tools that will be included in the single-window WebReg.

The TritonLink Executive Committee is also discussing changing the calendar feature so students can add personal events, extracurricular activities and work schedules to their planner in order to see if there are time conflicts.

“We’re going to make TritonLink a lot simpler,” Liang said. “We don’t even know if we are going to call it WebReg after this because [the changes will affect] the whole toolbox [of TritonLink].”

In addition, students can now register for classes via smartphone by using the m.ucsd.edu mobile website.

The iPhone application will also be run primarily through this mobile site. Though the iPhone application will still be available, the website makes it possible for students who use different smartphones to access the application’s features.

“As long as you have a phone with Internet, you can use the m.ucsd.edu website,” Liang said. “Most students use this for the map function, so we are trying to make it so that there are more features.”

The committee has also proposed changes to TritonLink’s degree audit feature.

“Right now, it’s just a white page with a bunch of letters and numbers on it,” Liang said. “We want to make it prettier and more user-friendly [by being easier to read and comprehend].”

These changes will most likely not occur until after the changes to WebReg are implemented.

The TritonLink Executive Committee consists of Vice Chancellor Penny Rue and Assistant Vice Chancellor for Telecommuting and Communications Min Yao, along with 13 administrative members, Liang and a graduate representative.

The committee meets once per quarter.The last meeting took place on Oct. 28, and the next one is scheduled to take place on Jan. 27. This is when the committee will receive an update from ACS regarding the progress of implementing these changes.
